    You certainly can, as I found out a few weeks ago, showing off the wonderful built in darkslide to a colleague & only remembering once I slid it back that there was film inside. Fortunately the frames I'd exposed were not fogged as they were tightly wound around the spool, just lost a few frames. First time I've done that in 10 years of owning it.

    Please Check for A Missing Film Gate

    Attached are two pictures that may help. I've seen a 6001with the screwed in place film gate, and 6001s with the newer removable film gate for Rollei Magazine 6450. If your camera looks like the picture without the film gate, there is the problem. On a related note, I've always found Herr Freudenberg at F&H/Rollei to be very helpful.

    Tim, your great !

    On my camera the filmgate is indeed missing, I'm relieved as now I know at least which one's the guilty part. There's a dealer warranty on the camera so I will have a word with them first.

    Cheers
